Judge Peter Sakai and special guests will celebrate the graduation of 11 participants from the Bexar County’s Early Childhood Court. These 11 parents also will celebrate reunification with 19 children just in time for Thanksgiving!
Participants in the Early Childhood Court have overcome hardships to include, but not limited to, trauma from separating from their children, substance use, poverty, homelessness and unemployment, and abusive and destructive relationships. With the help of the court they have been able to connect with needed resources to gain knowledge and skills to become nurturing parents to their children and meet their developmental and mental health needs. The primary focus of this program is working with families who have children ages 0-5.
We congratulate all 11 participants on their success with in completing this program.
